The understanding is the greatest venue bargain for IMAX in 2020 to date and denotes a stage forward as the worldwide cinema industry looks to revive. South Korea is among the business sectors driving this charge, with 18 IMAX theaters as of now open the nation over. CGV's lead area, CGV Yongsan, was the top netting IMAX theater on the planet in both 2018 and 2019.
Because of their 15-year association, CGV and IMAX now have in excess of 185 open or contracted auditoriums around the world. In the previous year, CGV has essentially developed its responsibility to IMAX with understandings for 58 new theaters — remembering an understanding for 40 new auditoriums for China marked in June 2019. CGV is the biggest multiplex film chain in South Korea and furthermore has branches in China, Indonesia, Myanmar, Turkey, Vietnam, and the United States. It is the fifth biggest multiplex performance center organization on the planet.
"CGV and IMAX both get that, as crowds the world over come back to theaters, they will need to see the momentous record of blockbusters ahead in IMAX," said Richard L. Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. "South Korea and Southeast Asia keep on being solid entertainers for IMAX and pioneers in the worldwide reviving of theaters, and this understanding further quickens our development in this key zone of the world."
